Kali represents the perfect metaphor of the great dissenter desperately needed in today’s times, to rise above subjugate society. Kali, a goddess of strength and destruction, represents energy in its purest and feral form. Goddess Kali is an embodiment of the unfettered, and uncontrolled energy, who like nature, can create and destroy with equal ease. She is the perfect feminist icon the world needs today.
“The Kali Project draws in the voices of women as women – teachers, mental health workers, writers, doctors, lawyers, bankers, social workers – adding a sharper understanding of the inner realities that patriarchal structures seek to silence, sanctified by society, religion, community, and class. With entries from children and teenagers, to poems by internationally well-known writers, the gamut of experiences is vast and reiterates the idea that art and poetry are the essential vehicles which carry the hurt and, in the process, also healing within them.”
-Charanjeet Kaur, Former Chief Editor and Features Editor of Muse India, currently Contributory Editor for Indian writing in English of MI. Consultant Editor of SPARROW (Sound & Picture Archives for Research On Women) Newsletter.

Candice Louisa Daquin, Co-Editor of the Kali Project, has always held a dear place in her heart for India. Outraged by reports of young women being raped, Daquin approached Sood about co-editing an anthology of out-cry, feminist poetry from Indian women. Daquin feels creating platforms for important, often neglected voices is the greatest worth someone in publishing can be part of. Editor of SMITTEN, This Is What Love Looks Like (an anthology of poetry by women for women), which was Finalist in the National Indie Excellence Awards (2019) and Co-Editor of We Will Not Be Silenced (an anthology of poetry in response to the #metoo movement) and As The World Burns (an anthology of poetry and art in response to #Covid-19, #BLM, #Trump).
